How do you feel about shoveling snow?
Yeah, we aren’t a fan either. However, you can turn this chore into a workout to make it more exciting! Be sure to shovel safely with these tips from Health Magazine.
- Do a proper warmup- If you just woke up, wait roughly an hour before going outside to shovel
- Use the right muscles
- Hold the shovel correctly
- Don’t twist and throw
- Take breaks — Try not to be out there for more than 40 minutes
- Strength train regularly
- To make shoveling a workout, do lunges or squats into each shovel of snow. You can also carry piles of snow further to get extra steps in.
